The all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado full-size pick-up truck was revealed at the Chevy Truck Centennial Event.
“For the Chevy Truck Centennial, we wanted to recognize the customers who have made Chevrolet part of their lives, and have them help kick off the next 100 years of Chevy Trucks.”, said Alan Batey, president, of GM North America, and global head of Chevrolet. He added, “Many of our owners depend on their trucks for work and play, personalize their trucks in astonishing ways and pass their loyalty for Chevy Trucks down from generation to generation.
The 2019 Silverado 1500 is all new from the ground up and leverages Chevrolet’s experience building more than 85 million dependable, long-lasting pickups. It also reflects feedback from more than 7,000 people on what they wanted in their next truck, the most customer research in the company’s history.
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado’s exhibits industry-leading pickup design. It’s a legacy built on decades of experience with models such as the Advance Design trucks of the 1950s and the C/K series of the 1960s. The 2019 model comes equipped with slim LED headlamps upfront and two trapezoidal tail pipes at the rear.
The new Silverado also delivers improved capability and performance. For example, a higher-grade alloy is used in the roll-formed, high-strength-steel bed floor, contributing to a bed that is more functional and lighter weight. This use of mixed materials and advanced manufacturing has resulted in weight reduction and improved performance.
As no two truck customers are alike, the next-gen Silverado will offer an expanded range of models, more engine/transmission combinations, and more technology and convenience features to help customers find their ideal truck.
The new Chevrolet Silverado LT Trailboss is one of eight 2019 Silverado models. It integrates the off-road equipment of the Z71 package as well as a two-inch suspension lift. Unlike aftermarket lift kits, the Trailboss suspension is fully tested, validated and warrantied by Chevrolet.
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado will make its public debut in January 2018 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, exactly 100 years after the first Chevrolet trucks were delivered to customers.
